How to use on the iOS 9.2-iOS 12.4
Please wait for 5 seconds after connecting to your device, then your iPad or iPhone automatically opens the photos app, so you can view them on the gorgeous display and share them with family and friends freely!
Please be noted that iOS 9.2-iOS 12.4 system can only read photos and videos taken by digital cameras; Photos and videos taken by NON-digital cameras or copied from online and other channels must emulate the photos saved by the digital camera and the folders saved by the Camera;
For example, use a computer to create a folder called "DCIM" to the root of the memory card; Then create a folder called "100CANON" into "DCIM";Copy the photos and videos into the “100CANON” folder. Rename photo and video file as "IMG_XXXX". where XXXX is a unique number. For example, if you had one JPG file and one MOV file, name them "IMG_0001.JPG" and "IMG_0002.MOV";
Then connect to your iPhone/iPad and try again.

I updated both iPhone and iPad to the iOS 13 and now either device no longer detects the card reader. I read a review claiming to work with the update, but I tried several times, over the course of one hour and was unable to detect the card reader with my devices.
Is this issue being addressed?
*Update to the update
I read another review that explained how to access media, so I tried once again with no hopes at retrieving my photos. To my surprise I was able to locate and save the photos to my iPad.
Step 1: insert sd/memory card into reader
Step 2: insert card reader into lightning port on iOS device
Step3: access file app on iOS device
Steps 4: once in files app, select “locations” locates at top left corner
Step 5: locate card reader on list and select to access card reader
Step 6: open DCIM Folder, then photo folder, then download or delete your photos.
You can save photos from your SD card to your phone:
- Insert the card reader into the lightning port, making sure that you have your MicroSD/SD Card in the card reader.
- Search and find the "File App" on your device, then get back to the home page of the Files App. You can typically click the "Browse" folder at the bottom right and it'll get you back there.
- Once you're back to the home screen you should see "Locations" and then below it it'll list the different locations that you have, and one of those will be your SD card. (The name will vary based on what you have named it or what the manufacture named it.) But it'll have the USB icon to the left of the name.
- Tap on your SD card to open it and then find the folder that you want to save the photos from and start saving!
You can also save photos to your SD card via the steps below:
- First make sure you have the adapter plugged in with the SD card inserted.
- Then select your photos on your iPhone that you want to transfer and hit the share button
- When the options for sharing come up, scroll down to "Save to Files"
- Once you click "Save to Files" you should now see the name of your SD card that you can hit to either select or then choose a folder inside your SD card to select.
- You can also add new folders on the SD as well from this screen.
Hope this helps!
(1) Insert the reader with an SD card inserted into the lightning port. Mine works with the iPhone already powered ON before I insert the reader, YMMV.
(2) Select Photos from the Home screen, open and "check" the photos/videos you want to
download to the SD Card.
(3) Click on the "folder with the UP arrow" on it near the bottom left of the screen. The files you have checked should be then visible with a little checkmark on them. SWIPE UP until you see "Save to Files" and click on that icon.
(4) At the bottom of the list of locations where you can save, you'll see "Untitled" and possibly some folders underneath it. This is most likely your SD card. Highlight "Untitled" (or whatever name your SD card might have) if it's not highlighted already.
(5) At the top of the screen you'll see the number of items selected. This will verify how many photos or videos you are transferring. Click on "Save" at the top right of the screen. The items will then be saved to the SD card. That's it.
Now when you remove the SD card from the iPhone accessory and plug it into a USB card reader. In Windows, you may see an error message that Windows has found some errors. If so, simply select the "Scan and Fix" option. Most of the time, in reality, there are no errors.
Now use File Explorer to examine the SD card. You'll notice that videos are saved as .MOV files, but photos are saved as .HEIC files. "What the heck is that", you ask inquiringly? Who cares - it's really a .jpg file, so just change the extension to .jpg and you're good to go.
One very minor downside for me- I use a special case for my 7+ that has an auxiliary battery built-in. The electronics in the battery case don't play nice with most accessories other than a charger, and this reader is no exception ("Accessory Not Supported"). Remove any battery-case before attaching the reader and you should be fine.
I haven't played with it much more than that, but will eventually if the need arises, I'll look into transferring files in the reverse direction, from the card to the iPhone, when I need it.
I couldn't ask for an easier way to get pix off my phone. An easy 5 stars.
I recently bought a non wifi dash cam for my car. Was a bit Disappointed since i had to connect my the SD card to my computer to see videos what my dash cam got. Decided to look for some sort of card reader and BAM! this smallest very affordable gadget appear. It works perfectly for my IPHONE 11 Pro Max. As you can see the pictures below. Do not be hesitate to buy this SD card reader. Just simply follow the instructions in the description. I really recommend this for people who own non wifi dash cams.
